6:44 Only Wanting to Eat Junk Food

Would love some help with eating good stuff instead of bagels and junk stuff.

My son only eats pizza, chicken nuggets, cheeseburgers, cheez-its, fruit, peanut butter and jelly and cheese. This is really it. We try and give him different foods we even hide it in foods. He just wont eat it. He has sensory issues and is starting a feeding therapist. The problem I have is that I am about ready to give up cooking. I waste so much food and my left overs go in trash. It is hard to make meals for just two people when only I eat. how can I get him to explore more foods? He also helps cook the meals in kitchen and he loves this a lot but when he has to eat it. He doesn't. HELP!

19:07 Persistent Diarrhea

My 3 year old is nonspeaking, diagnosed Autism.  We have started ABA but he has constant diarrhea which interrupts therapy.  I hear you talking about diet but when I asked my BCBA about starting the gluten free diet, he told me there is no science behind it.  Now I am confused.  Should we try the diet?  Am I with a bad ABA provider?

26:31 Class Action Lawsuit Announcement Sponsored by Shapiro Legal Group

29:38 Has My Son's ABA Team Been Successful?

Hi Dr. Doreen & Shannon. I love your show & so glad to have found y’all. I’d like to ask Dr. Doreen if she’d consider my sons ABA treatment so far successful. He started at 2 yrs 10 months and he is almost 6 months in. He has mastered about 75 programs. Started with a few single words and now speaks in 2-3 word phrase. No problem behaviors to report. Partially potty trained. I look forward to hearing from you all. Thank you so much!!!

30:53 My 9 Year Old is Struggling to Make Friends

My 9 yr old son will be starting 4th grade next week. We are still struggling making friends and asking to play properly. For example, we were at the shore last week and 2 boys were playing in the ocean. He wanted to play, and I told him go ask. He said "hi, this is my mom Johanny. Her phone number is ....) the kid looked so confused. I stepped in and said he wants to play with you. Didn't go well. I worry this is happening at school too. Can we get the school to support him during recess or lunch. I wish I was a fly on the wall to see what is happening, so I can figure out how to help. Suggestions? TIA and thanks for all that you both do 3

43:14 Clostridia left his brain completely unbalanced, is this reversable?

My 4 years old gut has been cleared now so much better behaviors, however, Clostridia left his brain completely unbalanced. Dopamine is not be converted to norepinephrine. is this reversible? HVA

HVA/VMA ratio is high (4) according to OAT

46:15 My Son Slaps and Kicks My Husband and I

Hello Dr Doreen: My son who is almost 7, slaps and sometimes kicks my husband and I. He only demonstrates this behavior at home. I am thinking the function of his behavior is negative attention seeking. Thank you for your help. Christina

49:54 Picky Eating (My Son will Only Eat Hot Burger King Fries

My child will only eat Burger King fries and only if they are a certain level of hot.  Don’t even think about giving him McDonalds…or getting French fries from BK and reheating them.  Our entire lives run around being able to get him hot fries from BK.  I don’t know how it started but how do I get us off this track…I am afraid to not have him eat.

54:40 About Constipation

5:13 Helping to Learn Conversational Speech Skills

My son is almost 4 years old, at 2 he got diagnosed with autism. We've been doing speech therapy and ABA for a year but I don't see much improvement. He is able to talk but his speech is not clear.

 

9:42 My problem is a 3.5 yr old minimally verbal for whom I cannot seem to find any kinds of reinforcers.  He runs from one thing to another, climbs on furniture, throws things around, breaks stuff,  doesn't stop even long enough to show interest in anything new for more than a few seconds, or favored previously.  I've tried snacks, sips of Cola (which he loves), new toys, he doesn't like to be touched so no tickles and much more. If I can get his attention to notice something, the minute I show interest, he abandons it.  It's as if he knows I'm trying to 'bribe' him.     I'm at my wits end so any advice?

 

20:33 My son is 16 on aripriprazole has been for 3 years. How long do we keep on medication.

 

23:58 My son w/ ASD will be 5 in Oct. He's progressed from single words at 3rd bday to talking in complete sentences- even complex (e.g., "and, if, so, because, but, while" etc. many times a day).

 

30:10 What about when ABA is just sitting at a desk for hours! What could I ask my ABA provider to do so he isn’t just sitting at a table?

 

32:40 My developmental pediatrician made referrals for multiple services ABA, music therapy, OT, Speech therapy and so forth but the problem we are facing is that the insurance has a waiting list and the we have to wait to provide services. I am almost positive that we may have to pay all his services out of pocket. Do you have any information where we don’t have to wait or pay out of pocket?

 

36:55 Potty Training: Teaching the Importance of Wiping

My son whines and demands to wash his hands after a BM. Despite knowing what to do about wiping himself; He is adamant to not do it and just directly wash his hands after a BM. I am at a lost on how to make him understand that wiping himself is needed. Thank you in advance.

 

38:05 Question for both Dr. Doreen and Shannon: What are the common things in autism success stories? This would be a great motivation for us parents :)

 

48:13 I have found that my sons teachers as well as ABA provider don’t push my son because they think he can’t do certain things but in reality he can and he is bored with what they work on with him!

 

49:37 Our son was doing really good for a long while doing aba. He would match objects with generic pictures. This term he's all of a sudden completely gone. Matches colors as if he was color blind.

 

57:05 How do I get my 3 year old started in ABA?

 

58:21 Where can I find the link to the free RBT training?

3:49 Is increase in babbling after intensive ABA therapy is a good or bad thing?

I want to update and ask you some questions. My son right now, 3 years 6 months old. Has been in ABA since 3 years old, first 20 hours per week and we increasing per month. Right now, he is in ABA therapy for 50 hours per week (in 3 different centers in Jakarta) and 2 hours per week sensory integration and occupational therapy. After very intensive ABA this 1 month, he increasing eye contact, tacting, labelling, manding, some intraverbals (answering questions). But, still very little spontaneous sentence or comment, and not yet conversational sentence. He is also increasing in babbling, random speech (not functional and also functional words). My questions, what can we expect from the therapy? Can very lot of ABA therapy cause overdose? Is increase in babbling (between functional words) after intensive ABA therapy is a good or bad things?

How long does intensive ABA therapy will last? What outcome we can see in the upcoming months or years? Right now he still in minimal verbal stimming (can ABA therapy reduced or minimize/disappear the verbal stimming?) (My son can interact like hugging, kissing, say good bye, kiss bye, he is a sweet and cheerful, playful boy)

 

18:56 what is a good behavior token economy. we started a summer challenge photograph the alpha bet. hope it motivates our support staff your thoughts

 

20:05 How do we get our son to sit through a hair cut, he’s almost 8. It’s getting tougher every time.

 

32:21 Do you have any kids that have gone through the stem cell therapy option? what were their outcomes?

 

35:12 What is the best way to plan a birthday party for an autistic individual?

I have heard horror stories of parents planning birthday parties and nobody shows up or rsvps. some have called police officers to show up. some have had to use social media campaigns. etc. what is the best way to plan a birthday party for an autistic individual?

 

43:18 My son can seem to get good ABA he will start and then the BI will quit or move it’s been so hard, Also they just sit him at a desk the whole time so my son feels like he is back at school.

 

50:25 Self Injurious Behavior (Banging Hands on Hard Surfaces)

I wrote in a few weeks ago for Dr. Doreen regarding my son’s self injurious stimming. Shannon asked me to email her but I haven’t had the chance, we were in crisis mode. We’ve tried all types of replacements but nothing is working. He bangs his hand,wrist and knuckles and is causing swelling and bruises. It’s not attention seeking. He likes how it feels when he bangs, He does it when there are no demands. He does it when he’s alone, I’ve had to buy him a glove to protect his hand, wrist, knuckles. He’s happy when he bangs, He’s laughing and playing while he’s doing it, He does it in all settings and places.
